Jumper: book to movie

The Tor/Forge February 2008 Newsletter has some interesting comments On Watching Jumper Become A Movie
by author Steven Gould. Among them:
  • Don't judge a book by its movie.
  • Late in his career, James M. Cain, author of Mildred Pierce, Double Indemnity and The Postman Always Rings Twice, was asked by an interviewer, “How do you feel about what Hollywood has done to your books?” “Hollywood has done nothing to my books,” Cain replied. “They’re right over there on the shelf, exactly as I wrote them.”

Some of the stories in our upcoming Electric Spec issue would make very good movies! Check out the February 28, 2008 issue and see what you think. :) And speaking of the upcoming issue and movies, Dave has an exciting announcement. Dave?

If yor are talking about one of my stories being released this summer as a major motion picture . . . you must be thinking of someone else. On the other hand, if you are refering to my story appearing in the next Electric Spec issue, then you are thinking of the correct person. More details will follow in a no holes barred author interview appearing on this blog.
